I received a car from the widow of a customer in exchange for money owed for work done on the customers fabrication machinery of which I was owed 10 times of what the car was worth. The title was missing and the car had multiple problems of which I have spent time and money to repair the widow's son from out of state says that they found the title and want money or they will report the car as stolen. There was no written bill of sale and the title hadn't even been transferred from the original owner. He lost the title when he bought the car and never transferred it. I live in Oklahoma. I last worked on the equipment within the 4 month period in which i can still file a mechanics lien but the equipment has possibly already been sold to a local shop. another thing, he owned the house she lives in and took a loan out against it for his business. He was not incorporated. I now wish to file liens on the machinery in which the work was performed if at all possible.....Read More

I'm a family member I paid 250 a month for a small room and 300 towards groceries and the only reason I'm asking this is because I wasn't there a couple of nights I slept over my girl friends basically i did some things around the house to help and was taken advantage of. Because the first night I wasn't there when I returned home I was told if they had to pay someone to fix something then I needed to move I was told what to pay in rent and food not to become there personal handy man but we made an agreement on some big jobs they needed done but when I was done they didnt honor there agreement I got nothing but they still got there rent and food money can I file a lien for the work I did??...Read More

OklahomaLien DeadlinesMechanics LienPreliminary Notice
We have multiple apartment complexes that we provided plumbing work for on many different occasions. This ranges from a $150 drain cleaning service to plumbing repairs for a few thousand dollars. They are on Net-30 terms. We are now 90 days out on some of these invoices so we are filing an intent to lien and combing all of the past due amounts into one lien notice since if we did it per job it would be 30-40 lien notices. Is this the proper way to handle it? So if we did 20 different services over a month timeframe and the total amount is $12,564, we are sending one notice of intent to lien with this total amount listed. Thanks for your help!...Read More

I'm a remodeling contractor in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. I bid a kitchen remodel which the homeowner agreed to, I set a start date and after working on the project for 5 days, the owner informed me that she no longer wanted me to continue and asked me to come get my stuff out and to bring an invoice so we could settle up, which I did, but she refused to pay me at that point. She said the reason for firing me was because she didn't like the way I was doing the minor electrical work, that I included in the bid, (replace a couple receptacles and installation of a couple can lights and new switch). Before the project even started, I informed her that I wasn't a licensed electrician, at the time she agreed to letting me handle the electrical anyway. This all happened in June of 2022. The total amount of my bid was $8,900, when I went to remove my stuff, I invoiced her for $3,600, she decided not to pay at that time. I contacted her several times to try and collect the $3,600 but she refuses to pay me anything. I feel that she is in Breach of Contract and I could sue for the full amount of project, $8,900. ...Read More
